Gave Assistance


Called to assist two jet skis with five people on board drifting out to sea from Ingoldmells Point.
When we arrived on scene  we located one of the jet skis with one person on board, we took the casualty aboard the lifeboat and proceeded trough heavy surf to deposit him with waiting UK Coastguard officers.

All other casualties had made their own way ashore and were assessed by local coastguard assets.

The inshore lifeboat  went to collect the first jet ski, set up a tow and proceeded toward the second ski, again taking it in tow, both skis were taken ashore at Chapel St Leonards for recovery.
